Congratulations to PRHS’s outstanding Gold and Blue team WordWright competitors
Several students representing Pearl River High School recently won high honors in this year’s first meet of the WordWright Challenge, a competition for American high school students requiring close reading and analysis of many different kinds of prose and poetry.
In the year’s first meet held in October, junior Kelly Buchan was one of only 14 eleventh graders in the entire country to earn a perfect score. At the same time, sophomores Lily Hill and Marguerite McAree place among the 145 highest-scoring tenth graders and juniors Gig Lam and Colleen Shortell among the 109 highest-scoring eleventh graders nationwide. More than 65,000 high school students from 48 states entered the meet.
